From Andrew @ Mikogo:

Hey Clif and Claire, thanks for the post about Mikogo. Since we released Mikogo we've received some great feedback from our users, and it's always nice to hear from new users.

 

By the way, you mentioned that a voice feature would be nice. You can get the Mikogo Skype Extra. Then you can chat and share your screen all for free.

 

Enjoy your free online meetings!

 

Regards,

 

Andrew
